Family Dentistry | Gum Disease Can Lead to Tooth Loss | Serving Valley Glen, CA

Do you have bad breathe, sensitive teeth and bleeding gums? You may have gum disease. There are two forms of gum disease: gingivitis, an inflammation of your gums caused by plaque, and periodontitis, a more advanced version of gingivitis that results in a gap between your teeth and your gums. Gum disease, when caught in the gingivitis stage, can be treated and, in the future, prevented. Periodontitis, on the other hand, is more difficult to treat and, due to the gap between the teeth and gums, may cause your teeth to become loose and fall out.

If you think you have gum disease make an appointment today for treatment with Dr. David Lunt DDS at 818-885-7230. Visit his website at www.davidluntdds.com.

Preventive Dentistry | Why do we use Toothpaste? | Serving Burbank, CA

preventive-dentistry-burbank

Ever wondered why we use toothpaste? Toothpaste helps to clean our teeth of plaque and food debris without damaging our delicate enamel. Toothpaste contains fluoride which helps to protect enamel. Some also include ingredients to reduce plaque. Toothpaste is a huge part of preventive dental care.

Toothpaste is made up of several ingredients that help to clean your teeth, such as:

  • Abrasives – helps to remove stains and plaque.
  • Detergents – this is what makes the toothpaste foam. It helps to dislodge food debris.
  • Humectants – gives the toothpaste texture and moisture.
  • Thickeners – helps the toothpaste stay on your brush and squeeze out of the tube that way it does.
  • Preservatives, Flavoring and Coloring: these give toothpaste the look, and taste it has.

In addition to your normal preventive dental care routine at home, be sure to visit Dr. David Lunt DDS for dental cleanings and checkups. Call for an appointment today at 818-885-7230. Visit Dr. Lunt’s website at www.davidluntdds.com.
